    sorry i got into this late, but where is this gaziano trunk show going to take place? and if i am in california, does he take phone orders?
    you say his mtm is less than a thousand dollars?

    i am very interested in a burgundy/cherry plain toe or wholecut in an elongated last with beveled waist.

    They'll tour San Francisco, Dallas & NY. For their detail schedule go to their website and click "exhibition."

    AF, I am considering Connaught, Westbury, Sinatra, Hughes & Grant. Decsion, decsion. What about you?

    I'm doing two bespoke (shown) and the
    MTO Hayes (although I'm wrestling with whether to get it in the tie-up version or the monk, the Carlyle). Thoughts?

    SF is Friday the 13th and Sat morning the 14th. Unfortunately I am here this weekend and may not get back in 2 weeks.

    Beautiful shoes LARon.

    Anyone know if you can order a mixed size (same last) in an MTO?? I have a 9E left foot and an 8.5E right foot.

    Thanks, guys (I'll be sure to tell Tony his artisanship is highly appreciated on SF, and even encourage him to become a member).

    I'm really looking forward to, both, meeting Tony and the whole bespoke experience. I've been dreaming of these three pairs of shoes (including the Hayes, below) -- as well as two Koji Suzukis -- since I first joined the Forum. I can't believe their nearly here/mine. Unbelievable!

    My dilemma with the Hayes is that, while I love the the tie-up version, I don't have any cool monks, save a pair of Crockett and Jones that, compared to the Carlyle, seem quite pedestrian (no pun intended). I may have to call an audible on this one, on site with Tony.

    Those pebbled grain Cannes loafers are exquisite.

    I have one or two other models I am thinking about that I will post soon.

    I really like the Connaught, Hanly, Astaire, and Derwent, but in calf. I may go to check them out, but with the exchange rate....

    Are you guys worried that, with a new company such as this, he will be inundated with orders and may have turnaround problems. (See, e.g., Darren Beaman)?

    I guess that I just don't see what makes these shoes so special.
